Welcome Back

I cannot believe how fast this year is going. It is so fun to see the kids come back from Thanksgiving break and excited to be back to school. We are looking forward to a wonderful winter. Please make sure that your children are dressed warmly as we do go outside unless the temperature is below 20 degrees or raining heavily.


I'm looking forward to seeing many of you at our Band/Orchestra/Choir Winter Concert as well as our 1st and 2nd Grade Winter Program. Please see the calendar below for the dates and times of those programs.

Drop Off Pick Up Procedures

Please be mindful of our Grace Jordan Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures.


  1. Please only use the drop off lane for drop off and pick up only.
  2. Please have your student ready to exit the vehicle when you arrive at the school. This will help keep the flow of the traffic running smoothly.
  3. Please pull all the way forward to the designated cone marked, "Please pull forward to here" when you drop your student off. If everyone pulls all the way forward, we can get more cars into the drop off lane.
  4. Please have your student exit out the right side of the vehicle onto the sidewalk as this is the safest route into the building or out onto the playground. It is not safe to have your student exit out the left side of the vehicle into the thru lane.
  5. Please do not stop in the thru lane to drop off or pick up your student. This not only impedes the traffic, but it is very dangerous for your students.
  6. If there are cars passing you in the thru lane please let them by before you pull into the lane to exit the parking lot, as they do have the right of way.
  7. If you do choose to walk your student into the building, please park your car in one of the stalls and then proceed to the crosswalk.
  8. Please do not encourage or ask your child to run across the traffic to enter/exit school grounds. If you are dropping your child off outside of the drop off zone on the main streets please drop your student off near a crosswalk or on the school side of the street.


Your cooperation is greatly appreciated! Thank you for helping us keep all of our Grace Jordan students safe!
